|You obviously see winter as I do, as I can not contain myself for the arrival of spring...thereupon the sparrows and finches shall present a more favorable reception then...and our hearts will warm much quicker.
|Reviewed by Sheila Roy
|Wise words, Dawn. I like this quiet moment. Much of your poetry has images of you deep in thought. I find myself thinking of you as someone who is constantly learning and seeking answers, as we all should be. A great poem.

|YOU ARE RIGHT...LOVING OUR LIVES SO MUCH, WHEREBY WE CAN ACCEPT WHAT WE DON'T PARTICULARLY LIKE BUT CANNOT CHANGE...IS A TRUE VICTORY. WELL WRITTEN AND THANKS FOR SHARING. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS. LOVE & FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS|

|Dawn, for me personally it is not acceptance as much as it is submission or acquiescence. While winter offers beauty to the eye that is incomparable at times, cold weather and bitter winds hold no allure for me. As for your beautiful poem, my reception was more than favorable. A delightful work my dear friend. Love and peace to you. Jon Michael|

|I also have no fondness for the long, dark winter !
Very well expressed, and developed into something 'larger' than winter, Dawn.
|Reviewed by Gianetta Ellis
|Yes, I've just written a passage in a book on which I'm working - the heart of it acknowledges that acceptance lives on the far side of tolerance. Acceptance is a step - no a quantum leap - beyond tolerance and it is a liberating and far lighter place to be. There's no teeth gritting or looking the other way in acceptance.|

|A soft thoughtful expression ...

|A joy to share your thoughts, Dawn. Even after my tumble on
the ice last winter, I'm still a guy of all seasons...though I
love these lines:
sparrows believe their continuous prattle will keep
winter at bay.

|Boy, can I identify with this one, Dawn. I'm not a winter person at all.|
|Reviewed by John Flanagan
|"...my nose is cold and my fingertips numb."
You take me, Dawn, to a world and to sensations I no longer experience, they reside only in memory, and when you are perpetually warm it's difficult to imagine the 'other' state...and then that great notion of acceptance, the key to all, hinting at lot and destiny.

A nice walk - I agree, winter is not even for the birds. They fly south and that's where I want to be!
Amen! Well done!
